Community Development Block Grant 2022

Thank you for your interest in submitting an application for the upcoming Community Development Year 49 Program. The Town of Stratford has determined that it should anticipate receiving approximately $630,000 as its entitlement from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

Citizen participation has always been an integral part of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program. In an effort to maximize participation, and prior to the submission of the application for these funds, the Town must provide the residents of Stratford an adequate opportunity to comment on the needs of the community, and to present their ideas for projects and activities that might best meet those needs.

In order to receive CDBG funding, the Town must develop an Annual Action Plan. As part of this process, the Town seeks your input as to community needs, as well as the types of projects and activities it should include within its Annual Action Plan for Program Year 49 (2023) that will meet the Town’s housing and priority non-housing community development needs. Please be advised that the Community Development Subcommittee of the Economic and Community Development Commission will be holding a public hearing in the Council Chambers February 22, 2023 at 6pm.

Please keep in mind that the program must primarily benefit low- and moderate-income (LMI) persons, since the Town must ensure that 100 percent of the grant will be used for activities meeting this criterion.

The deadline for submission of proposals is Friday, February 10, 2023, by 4:00 PM. It is anticipated that a proposed Annual Action Plan will be finalized on or before March 31, 2023, so that it can be published for a 30-day comment period.

If you should have any questions on any of this material, or need any additional assistance, please feel free to call the Community Development Administrator at (203) 381-2049 or send an email to [email protected]

The Town of Stratford looks forward to your participation in the 2023 Community Development Block Grant Program.
